I haven't heard of any approvals this year - some renewals for very experienced breeders with a diverse genetic colony and some affiliation with an AZA institution.I am in Tacoma area, WA, United States. I now have five radiata. My oldest is about two. I do not have a permit. But, I am interested in hearing if anyone gets approved.
I have Indian stars that are beginning to produce.
I have a couple Burmese stars but they are just babies.
I bought many a russian tortoise from Cal Zoo in the 80's, for a pretty cheap price!!Hi,
I just got my first baby. Used to work for Cal Zoo/Zoo Med in the 80’s.
Been a long time since I’ve had a tortoise.
We had a Desert Tortoise as kids in the 70’s. This site is amazing for the resources.
Scratch that! I now have 4 in North Carolina.Not a keeper, but seeking Radiated tortoises in North Carolina, in state only, no CBW permit (nor any intent to get one)
Do you mind adding me to the keeper list?Do you keep radiata tortoises? There's been some interest to have a thread showing members who keep the radiata by state. Not just breeders, but keepers.
